Fun, Fun, Fun!!! This is what Vinx is all about as he loves what he does and it exudes abundantly throughout his music. He is an extraordinary percussionist with a golden baritone voice that fans can’t seem to get enough of. For this holiday season, a re-release of his 2002 album, Little Drummer Boy, is available in retail. It poses a special holiday treat.

Eleven of the 12 tracks on Little Drummer Boy are standards that Vinx added his own special twist to. The Jamaican tinged melody with lyrics “Winter Wooonderland’’ that presents a snowman named “Mr. James Brown” offers a danceable funky beat. An arrangement of “Ave Marie”, which is comprised of only vocals and percussions, is included. It is very unusual but nice all the same. “Christmas In Paradise”, a Vinx original, is carnival reminiscence of dancing in the streets while the steel pans drive the rhythmic beat. Track favorite is the lively, jazzy rendition of “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas.” It has a scat culmination that is just awesome.

Impressively, the entire tracks on Little Drummer Boy present the making for a cool Yule. So before you haul out the holly, it might not be a bad idea to have Vinx’s classic queued up and set to play.

Although he had a gig back in 1978 as a percussionist for Taj Mahal, Vinx was a world-class triple-jumper. In fact, in 1980 he posted the second best jump in the world, but the United States...
